Volume 192 Fire. This week our hero is yelling fire in a crowded theater.

Thanks this week for the songs from David Johansen ("Sinking Ship"), R.E.M. ("The One I Love"), Randy Rainbow ("I Won't Vote Trump"), and Golden Earring ("Twilight Zone"). Clips and excerpts from Rod Serling; Rudy Giuliani; Cartman; Richard Nixon; J.L. Cauvin; Deep Throat from "All The President's Men;" "The Late Show;" Seth Meyers; Bob Woodward; Trevor Noah; Steve Doocy; and Stephen Colbert. An original radio theatre show each week, with most sounds culled from the previous week, about a fictional, theatrical presidency. Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another five months of episodes. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.
